On Sunday April 30, twenty-nine duos took part in the third edition of the SXM Swimrun 2023 covering 12km of running and 2km of swimming in a good mood that delighted the association Tous à l'Ô, organizer of the event represented by Boris Villemin.
With a departure set for 6 a.m. in Galisbay, the 29 pairs headed for the coast towards Friar's Bay for the first swimming test which took them to Happy Bay. Going up to Grand-Case via Anse Marcel by alternating the two disciplines, the finish line installed on the beach of Coco Beach in Orient Bay was crossed by each team happy to have accomplished this great sporting effort.
The big winner of the SXM Swimrun 2023 is none other than the SBH Tri team made up of Stéphane Lenoir and Fabien Husson with a time classification of 1 hour 45 minutes and 42 seconds. The duo also won the challenge of the Northern Islands having also participated in the Saint-Barthélemy event, which hosted 15 teams the previous weekend, scoring a total cumulative time of 3:42:31. In second position in the SXM Swimrun 2023, which finished the race after 1:47:24, the Pina Colada team with Clémence Briche and Pierre Chassaigne, a great mixed team that made the difference.
